Another new question... we have to replace or retemper the set of balance springs that support the weight of the barrel when it is elevated. [They are housed in the two cylinders that sit below the barrel]. Unfortunately, we dont know how 'springy' the springs should be. I gather this is expressed in engineering terms as the 'spring rate' and is the weight required to compress the springs by one inch.

Does anyone have any technical info about the characteristics of these springs, especially the spring rate value ?
